I heard of cover of Belle and Sebastian's "Get Me Away from Here I'm Dying," and I cannot figure out who was performing it. The guy who was playing it didn't know; he said it got it off some movie soundtrack or something, so I don't think it was a particularly rare or difficult-to-find cover. The singer's voice sounded a bit like Morrissey. It definitely was not Stuart Murdoch. Is anyone familiar with it? It's killing me.
I really enjoy Brings' cover of Zarah Leander's "Nur nicht aus Liebe Weinen". Who else does this type of cover?

What Mexican song did I hear that heavily sampled (or covered) an English language rock band like April Wine or Foghat (or similar). The Spanish lyrics sort of rapping over a bed of the classic rock sound. And I'm almost positive it wasn't Molotov. [more inside]

I've seen a couple people recently with very nice fairly stiff leather journal covers, maybe a little smaller than 8 1/2 by 11, that hold a smaller replaceable floppy journal inside. I want one. I've looked around some, but all I can find are the cheap mass-produced ones. Does the hive mind have a lead on where to get a good-quality leather cover online or in the SF bay area?

A while back, I came across a site that would generate artwork suitable for use in iTunes for those odd old singles you have on MP3. The artwork resembled an old 45 RPM record and I think could be customized with the track and artist name. Ring any bells? I can't find it in my bookmarks.

I heard a piece of Muzak while shopping in Staples; the verse was forgettable, but the chorus was the verse from Kraftwerk's Computer Love (0:31 to 0:47 is the first full statement of it). It wasn't just similar; I know about soundalikes; it was note-for-note identical in melody and rhythm. I heard two more verse/choruses. It didn't seem to be a cover; the lyrics were not about computers; and of course, the actual "verse" was completely different. Searching and asking got no results, anyone know it? [more inside]
